We had the privilege of hosting Gene Gagliano, Wyoming State Poet Laureate and Children's author for a book signing today! It was a pleasure to have him here and sharing his work with everyone who came to the gallery.
If you haven't had the privilege of reading his poetry, you should treat yourself to the smiles and brightness it will bring you.
Owner and creator of Nature's Tapestry, Emily Gorham Keith is a tapestry artist who lives in Tensleep, Wyoming.
She says her Nature's Tapestry originals reflect her love affair with natural fiber's luscious hand, its varied textures and the vibrancy of its colors.
Emily uses traditional rug hooks on linen backing to create her highly textured works. Her originals are finished with a fabric backing for added durability.
She has transformed a few of these lovely tapestries into gorgeous decorative pillows stuffed with the raw wool from which they originated.
For each composition, she takes the raw fiber and spins it, dyes it and stitches each individual loop into a tapestry that is her own original creation.
Each piece is truly a labor of love.
Fine artist, photographer, teacher and graphic designer Lisa Norman is a gem in our collection here at Wyoming In Color. A graduate of the Colorado Institute of Art in Denver, she uses light and depth to illustrate the beauty of our local area and culture. Her background in medical illustration helps create the realism and detail in every aspect of her work.
Lisa has shown pieces in the Bradford Brinton Art Museum, participates in the annual Black Hills Stock Show Quick Draw and teaches art classes locally and online. You can learn more and even take some of her classes through her website www.artwithlisa.com.
This Buffalo native has had her work shown in galleries and private collections across the country.
The gallery carries oil originals, photography on canvas, framed prints, notecards and children's books which she has illustrated.
Wyoming In Color Gallery would like to raise a glass to you and wish you all the best in 2021!
The gallery will be closed for the month of January, for a seasonal break and we will reopen again February 1st.
We are looking forward to a wonderful year!
